Proverbs19:21 “Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.”
The Scene: A hand-formed sand castle–symbolic of man’s false hopes and dreams. People put their trust in dreams and their time and effort into worldly things that do not last.
As soon as the sand castle was completed the tide began to come in. The waves, like God’s living Word, began to erode the castle of false hopes and dreams. The Word is Jesus Christ. Jesus wants each person to come to Him, place their faith and trust in Him, and in His wisdom. He is our Creator; He has perfect plans for our lives and He desires to replace our own wisdom with His own.
Job 27:11,18 “I will teach you about the power of God; the ways of the Almighty I will not conceal. The house he builds is like a moth’s cocoon, like a hut, made by a watchman.”
Titus 2:11 “For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.”
Colossians 3:2-3 “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.”
